Sea Change Affinity – Why JRuby/GlassFish ?

Filed under: glassfish, rails — Tags: — arungupta @ 8:46 pm

At Rails Conf 2009, Jay McGaffigan from Sea Change talked about why they choose JRuby/GlassFish for their product Affinity. Here are some of the reasons he quoted:

  • Performance characterisitics (of GlassFish) have been excellent
  • Picked GlassFish based upon the recommendations from the people in industry
  • Dramatically more throughput on our GlassFish installation, 400 requests/sec instead of 100 requests/sec comapred to Tomcat
